Lufthansa Cargo in Munich took a big step toward a paperless future when the first deliveries without AWBs were handled as part of the e-AWB rollout.
A new customer-friendly process is being implemented in Munich for this, enabling almost all freight to be shipped from Munich without AWBs, regardless of destination.
Once successfully stabilized, the e-AWB will be extended to more customers.
Numerous forwarders have expressed an interest in being included in this first phase. During this period, Lufthansa Cargo and customers will work to eliminate any IT and process challenges.
Volumes are expected to rise to 45 percent by the end of the year.
